to tighten and move to governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> we heard from newt gingrich who has some experience standing on stage opposite mitt romney. he says one of the new challenges is to basically stand next to the president, indict his as he described them failed policy but doing them in a firm, respectful way. aids to both mitt romney and the president really try to get under their skin. it's moments like that that can get under the president's skin. >> that debate prep is tough because they have to challenge them with their weaknesses, that can't be fun but necessary. >>> well, just moments ago, the president left the white house en route to nevada for a campaign revent and a few days of debate preparations. >> governor romney, they have said that he's practiced zingers and lines for moves and months and months. >> i think the president's view is he's not worried about zingers and lines, he's got time with the american people to explain to them his case for re-election, about what he wants to do on the economy. >
of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates
this as an inyou in this race. -- as an issue in this race. according to politico governor romney now hold a 9-point advantage over president obama with middle class families. 53-44%. joining me to discuss it leslie marshall and lars larson. we were told by the mainstream media, lars, that governor romney was having major campaign issues and they were rooted to the middle class so how do you explain this poll? >> i think it's easy to explain. i can't wait for leslie to explain why middle class voters should like a guy -- watching middle class incomes -- megyn family incomes -- not the incomes of doctor's wives like leslie. but family incomes have gone down $5,000 under this guy. obama-care was supposed to bring premiums down by $2,500 but instead they have gone up $2,500. obama-care has 20 different taxes in it. why would any middle class family be happy about a president who took away flexible spending accounts? what is there to love if romney offers an alternative to what obama has done to them? megyn: when you look at the polling they dug deep and asked what is it that's upsetting you. 45%
at this. it's remarkable. here's how the race looked before romney's 47% comment became public. some ups and downs but overall a pretty steady race. here's the race since the 47% video surfaced last monday. it's clear, it's a clear shift toward the president as americans learn more and more about romney, who romney is and how he views so many americans. two candidates, two visions in this election. we're all in this together or you're on your own. bill job build jobs from the bottom up or harvest jobs. joining me from mother jones, he broke the news about this harvest video a week after the 47% video itself. and michelle carter, washington correspondent for the newsweek daily beast. thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, rev. >> now, david, the romney campaign has responded to this harvest video. they said, quote, in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital by turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way. end of that quote.
that the debates would change the narrative of this race. that is a lot of pressure the romney campaign is putting on the debates. >> mark hurry, nbc news, senior political editor, telling us those conventions do matter after all. thank you, sir, have great sunday. >>> three days until the much-anticipated first presidential debate and the romney camp betting that the showdown as you just heard there, will be a game-changer. >> governor romney is going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten. and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> joined by chris kofenus communications editor. chris, let me start with you. is this thing going to be as governor christie just said, is it going to be a game-changer? >> well, thanks for chris christie for raising expectations. i mean here's the reality -- i think if everyone is speaking honestly and openly, if you're the romney campaign, you l
're saying when the media writes every day that governor romney has lost the race because the polls say so, might as well not have an election, that they're wrong. >> don't take your election coverage from the establishment media. >> i didn't. i'm telling you what they said. >> don't let them dictate -- >> bill: i just watch you, imus and fox all day. >> really, in 40 years in america, i don't think i've ever seen the media on one side so much as they are this time around. >> then you weren't the bush press secretary. >> no, i was not. >> bill: there's no difference, but you know something, i don't want to whine and complain. all lied tike to see is an aggressive, thoughtful in the debate. i've never seen this president verbally stung. let's assume they won't ask the questions that need to be asked. >> they will not. >> bill: then romney needs to bring up his failed record. if he doesn't do that, that's a mistake. >> romney is a good debater. president obama is a good speaker, reads the teleprompter. >> bill: he never answers the question. >> you're right. when he's challenged, he can get
steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he were re-elected, i can assure you almost $20 trillion in debt. >> reporter: asked about the fi
this race really start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> it is the top of the hour. a beautiful morning here in new york city. welcome back to "morning joe." mark halperin and john heilemann are still with us. and joining the set, nbc news's tom brokaw, good to have you with us. >> so mika, we need some help. >> we do. >> from viewers. e-mail us. >> or tweet. >> what's the best e-mail or tweet? what's the best one for us? >> joe@msnbc.com. >> tom brokaw believes, like espn, we need to brand events, we need to brand this wednesday debate. tom, you suggested the rocky mountain rumble. i like that. we had the donnybrook in denver from mark halperin. >> and yours was? >> the mile high. >> that's just a story. we need some suggestions. >> there's our twitter address. >> but you're going, though. >> i'm on my way today. >> what are you looking for? >> i'm going to spend time with undecided voters in golden, colorado, still is a battleground state. we want to hear what they're looking for o
from 220 solid states, electoral college votes to 196 today. whereas mitt romney has gone from 135 to 156. this race is up for grabs. battlefield is broader than april. very much up for grabs. >> bret: joe, we have this app we talk about every week on an ipad app that people can get. they can put their own maps in. put them up against your map and karl's map and submit them. people have been doing that. we have one today from connie c. debaca. tell us about that map. >> this is a great map. connie -- it deals with some reality. she gives ohio to obama. what that does, she also puts virginia in the obama column as well. but she still has romney winning this thing with 270 electoral votes. the problem is how she does. romney winsness and colorado, both possibilities. but she does this giving romney wisconsin something i think will be a tough, very tough road for romney to pull off. which points out why virginia is so important. why ohio. the 3-2-1 strategy we started with in april. romney has to pull one of those two states out. if he winnings both of them, he is probably president.
. when you have a tie race, greta, it's an advantage for romney, because the undecided vote always goes against the incumbent. that's how reagan got elected. carter was six points ahead of him seven days out, and carter lost by nine because the undecided always went to the challenger. when you're undecided you're basically saying you don't like the incumbent. >> greta: if you take today's numbers, instead of weighting them to the 2008 election, weight them to 2004 or 2000, does it have a different winner? >> yes. if you take any of these polls that currently show romney behind by five, six, or seven points, you weight them to the 2008 turnout, you have romney at least tied and in most cases ahead. you also have him carrying florida easily, virginia easily, ohio more or less a break-even race. you not only have the weighting, you have the undecided vote. i really believe that's what's going on -- we all talk about media bias. this is an instance of it. they're trying to drown the romney campaign and the perception that they can't win, they're losing, so everybody gives up. it just ain't
to be to say that romney did what he had to, is in the game, because we want a race. >> i'm not so sure about that. [ laughter ] >> we want the race to continue. what else would we talk about? >> all i've heard for weeks and weeks is that it's all over. this debate is obviously extremely consequential. the debates and primaries are consequential because it is the one source of truly unfiltered information you can get. romney handled himself quite well. is he an adept debater. the problem is, it isn't a 1980s situation. the theory going into the race on the romney side is he has to show up and reassure people. that's what his whole convention was about. he has a much higher bar than that. he needs to convince people that his program is a better answer for the country. that's what he has to do. it's not going to be easy to do because there's going to be lots of distractions coming at him and the president himself is quite an adept debater. >> he had clinton at the convention. >> that comes down to the two theories of the race. one was right, one was wrong. the romney theory, tell people it's ok
place wednesday night in denver. one republican leader predicted mitt romney's performance will be strong enough to reshape the race. steve handelsman on capitol hill now with more on this. >> reporter: jim, thanks, good evening. both these candidates are looking at the polls, mostly in the battleground states. and they're all eyeing this debate, both eyeing this debate on wednesday. picture it, mitt romney side by side with barack obama. this is what challengers want, to be literally on an even keel with the incumbent president and 60 million americans could tune in. prominent republicans said today, it's huge. they're setting up for the debate in denver. one of mitt romney's biggest backers sounds upbeat. >> every time he's been challenged, in one of these situations, and had a debate, he's come forward with an outstanding performance. listen, i plead guilty to having confidence in the guy on wednesday night. >> reporter: but romney trails in every battleground state. >> he's got to redefine himself as someone who cares about the average american. he's got to show how his
and look at the data, the president is winning the race. his lead has increased over the past, you know, month or so. it looks like from the polling we're seeing the 47% comments have hurt him. and -- have hurt mitt romney and yet there is an increasing industry growing up on the right to just deny this. and i'm not even sure like what the point of it is. i mean, maybe you're right, but then isn't it all just going to on election day be exposed as like -- i'm just fascinated by the growth of this industry, joe. >> well, one of the things that i see, and this is outside of politics because i write about economics so much, is i use charts a lot in my writing, you know, comparing public sector employment, private sector. i see the same thing all the time. this aggression against data or they're convinced that all data is manipulated darks at that is a lie. if i show that private sector employment has actually done relatively well under obama, relatively well compared to past recoveries and most of the job losses have been in the public sector, people think it's a lie. the debate ends becau
's tourn the the presidential race. republicans are tearing out their hair trying to figure out why the romney campaign can't seem to get out of its own way. could the answer be mitt romney? we will debate that next up on kudlow. to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? >>> welcome back to "the kudlow report." i'm larry kudlow. in this half hour, you have to hear this late-breaking news. president obama blocked a chinese company from owning four wind farm projects in northern oregon. the reason -- apparently national security concerns. plus, our president has been touting his so-called new plan. he named it "patriotic economics." want a clue what it may be like? parlez vous fracais? . gop supporters can try to int blame clint eastwood's empty chair
happening among the right that is the debate that should be happening after election day, why mitt romney lost. it's happening right now. it's still a very close race. it's still a very winnable race for mitt romney, a. and, b, i think all of the big money is contributing to this. i want to talk about how that plays into this right after we take this break. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. companies have to invest in making things. infrastructure, construction, production. we need it now more than ever. chevron's putting more than $8 billion dollars back in the u.s. economy this year. in pipes, cement, steel, jobs, energy. we need to get the wheels turning. i'm proud of that. making real things... for real. ...that make a real difference. ♪
mixed it up. hey, willie, let's go to the race for the president. obvisly,ot goi on thol looking good. mitt romney saying he's not paying attention to the polls. you're having a lot of his supporters saying, well, you don't pay any attention to the polls. i heard walter mondale say that the night before the election. a lot of desperation going on on the far ght, but what's aserocus on the swing states. the candidates in virginia today, one of 30 states where early voting is already under way. it's a ste president obama won in 2008 by more than six points. and where a polling average from real clear politics shows him right now at this moment up about 5po. erboantes holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york timebsnnc inm n points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. know i'm not
's weird because you can argue they're racing after the wrong news headlines. for instance we spent a couple days obsessing over a 1980s or 1990s redistribution quote from obama right? that was the news of the day for the romney campaign at that time. we gave more attention to that than we did to the revifgs the gdp numbers or growth numbers that happened yesterday down from 1.7 to 1.3% growth. you would think in an ideal world for romney that would be a bigger story. the economy grew much slower in the second quarter than we thought. >> right. >> they put a lot more emphasis and push behind the redistribution quote which was old, sort of meaningless, didn't say much about obama. >> 1998. you're looking at the fact that over the last three months, kelly, you have jobs coming in at hundred dollar a hundred thousand per month. and they're chasing the headline of the day or they pull out a 1998 video. people don't care about that any more than they care about when mitt romney stopped being ceo of bain capital. what they want to know is how the hell are you going to get me back to work?
votes there. in this tight race four votes could mean the difference between who is president and who is not. they want to fight hard. mitt romney's adopted home state there, if you will. >> right, so he'll be doing that for sure in new hampshire and then in ohio today. okay, thank you very much, ron mott appreciate that. >>> let's get more on the president's surge in the polls. he is increasing his lead in a number of key swing states. he's leading in all nine nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls taken over the last three weeks. let's talk about what's happening from the gop perspective. because some there are complaining about the polling. they say the pollsters are oversampling democrats. any legitimacy to any of these complaints? >> well, you know, alex one of the things that we often find is that the side that's complaining about polling or the media usually the side that's down. so, that's i think more of what's happening here, rather than the polls being skewed in some way. i mean, i think our pollsters, you know, we use a republican polling firm. we use with a democratic pol
, people are on the side of democrats and that's why you don't hear mitt romney and paul ryan offering a lot of specifics and that's why you have a lot of senate races hinging on candidates have that have taken tough votes. >> i'm going to have to leave it there. ed rendell and margie, thank you for your time this evening. >> thank you. >>> we'll be right back. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. i'm bara ck o bama and i approve romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said
, mika. >> yes, they are. are you ready? >> i'm ready for you to talk about the presidential race. >> zip it. according to the latest quinnipiac university/new york times/cbs news poll of likely voters, it's actually related -- >> no, it's not. >> president obama leads romney by 10 percentage points in ohio. no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president is up nine points in florida and has opened up a 12-point lead in pennsylvania. in the same poll, president obama leads mitt romney in his handling of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unl

on the campaign trail as president obama and mitt romney hunkers down and prepares for wednesday's debate. a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows a very tight race. so both campaigns see tomorrow night as a big opportunity. this presidential campaign has been going on for nearly two years and finally it's debate season for the nominees. the time when americans seem to really start paying attention. president obama's rehearsing with senator john kerry and mitt romney is squaring off against senator rob portman. both candidates have challenges and checklists. president obama's working on shorter answers, trying to avoid sounding like the professor he was before the white house. democrats say he needs to look strong and forceful and not appear irritated or impatient. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as opposed to information in this. >> reporter: and mitt romney? he has to seem relatable, especially after his 47% comment. how can h
. >>catherine: the clock is ticking. it is still a very close race although new polls show the president has an edge in three critical states. today mitt romney tried to explain that by claiming that the president is not fighting fair. >> he is trying to fool people into thinking that i think things that i did not. >>catherine: romney did not do himself any favors when asked about the fact that his wife's plan was forced to make an emergency landing this weekend. he said, the biggest problem in a case like that is that the windows don't open adding, i do not know why they do not do that. it is a real problem. >> it is too early to say if there could be an outbreak of the stars respiratory disease. world health officials are sounding the alarm of a new killer virus. british health authorities are alerting the web avenue respiratory virus and a severely ill patients from a car. he was sickened by acre rotavirus fact that causes most common colds but also causes scars car. in 2003, stars killed hundreds of people, mostly in asia, and a short-lived outbreak. if the 49 year-old patient had rec
the message that romney has a weirdness factor. he said that he's, quote, from another planet. now they play the religion card. >> sean: they've also played the race card. >> all of the above. >> sean: they have played divide america along racial lines, rich versus poor, old versus young, scare grandma, we're going to throw granny over the cliff. republicans don't want clean water. obama lies. the president said their plan is for dirty air and dirty water. that's a lie. i don't like my president lying to me. do you like your president lying to you? >> i think it's wrong, left or right, politician or otherwise. when governor romney says the president is apologizing, he's lying. we're lying if we think that it's okay to attack the president's christianity whether it's with jeremiah wright or billy graham's son -- >> sean: this is another cheap shot by the dirtiest campaign in history. >> senator reid is not -- >> sean: let's be real. the point is liberals like yourself remain silent. you stand idly by and make exceptions. >> i'm here. >> do you condemn harry reid's remark or not? >> no. >> you
in this race will have an opportunity to make that direct comparison and see the two of them. and when they do, i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is and the president's view for the future. and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> wait, wait, mr. christie, the whole idea is to lower the bar for your candidate, not raise the bar. chris christie does whatever he wants. but he did bring up a good point, the idea of contrast. they want to show the contrast, the choice between what mitt romney would do in the white house vis-a-vis president obama. >> we'll have to wait for wolf blitzer's show to get the new polling and see how it's going. >> thank you. >>> and also remember, you can see that debate right here live on cnn, our special coverage at 7:00 p.m. eastern. and if you can't get to a tv, we've got you covered cnn.com, streaming live, as well. there are a lot of warning lights and sounds vying for your attenti
romney very much wants to win and perhaps needs to win as this race gets into the fifth week before the election day. now paul ryan today hammered the president hard as he's done the past few weeks. that message back on that wall. "we can't afford four more years" of what he says are the president's failed economic policies. he says the president promised that he would cut the deficit. it has ballooned. he said the president promised to keep unemployment under 8% if the congress passed the stimulus package. unemployment rate has been over 8% for 43 straight months. that's been the message that paul ryan has been carrying for unfortunately for the campaign mitt romney trails president obama here in new hampshire rather by seven points. in ohio by eight points. he's got a lot of work to do between now and then. next week paul ryan will hit some more battle ground states starting monday in iowa. in between he will also prepare for his debate on october 11th between vice-president joe biden in connecticut. mitt romney and president obama are down for the weekend getting ready to square
